1  knitty's bubby bear in Knitting: Completed Projects by vanessaj on: October 07, 2005 02:18:02 PM
i knit the bubby bear from this months knitty http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTbubby.html

i think that he turned out pretty darn cute Smiley
i had thiner yarn so i knit him up on size US#3 dpn's. he turned out to be about 6 inches high. the yarn was an angora acrylic blend that i picked up at a yard sale.

(i linked the image from my blog. if you can't see it you can check there http://babyburger.blogspot.com/2005/10/baby-knits.html

i finished mine. this is my first sweater too. although it doesn't feel like it.
i'm not the type to shrug so i changed it to a full length pullover. the first time that i made it i didn't like the way that i did the bust shaping so i frogged it back to where i started the ribbing and knit that part over. i also shortened the selves, and knit the cuffs in 1x1 rib to match the bottom part of the sweateroh and i knit them in the round too. 

i used TLC amore yarn in "celery". it is super soft, the knitted fabric is kinda nubby and looks a little like chenille or terry cloth, i like it tho. i used just over one ball.

this was super fun and easy to knit. the shrug part took  me about 20 hours. and im not sure how much time the bottom half took. it would have been much faster if i didn't have to frog it, and keep trying it on and such, because i was making it up as i went along.

thanks so much for sharing the great patterns!!
I would love to see the pattern for the white square-neck twin set, it looks so cute!
i also really like this set, mostly im interested in this sweater:

i would be willing to trade but i really don't have any patterns to share, but if there is something else i could get for you... or if some one has the pattern in English.

6  yarn scraps pillow- now with pattern! in Knitting: Completed Projects by vanessaj on: September 14, 2005 02:18:01 PM


i knit this using yarn leftovers. the pattern is my own and i made the buttons out of fimo clay. it should be a little more square shaped, but i don't have enough stuffing in it yet. size is 11-inches by 9.5-inches.
